Reasons to Visit Putsborough, North Devon

Just a five mile drive from Ash Barton is Putsborough Sands, a three mile stretch of quiet sandy beach that reaches north towards Woolacombe and has Baggy Point at its southern tip.

Known as one of the best beaches in the south west, the surf is good, the sea is clear and the scenery is stunning. Take a peaceful stroll along the golden sand while the water laps at your feet or feel free to explore the rock pools for the tiniest sea creatures. If you’re looking for an action-packed afternoon, Putsborough Sands is also a good spot for kayaking, canoeing, sailing and swimming. And it’s popular with surfers too, especially longboarders, as it’s the only beach in the area to have some protection from south and south-westerly winds, thanks to Baggy Point.

Unlike busy neighbouring beaches, Putsborough Sands moves at a slower pace and only has one beach shop and one café, which has a great selection of dishes that are freshly prepared. The ice cream is good here too. And remember to check out the loos. No, really. They’ve actually won awards.

We got married in the chapel and had a marquee on the lawn in front of the lake. We kept the giant games room for our guests and spent Sunday in the pool. The house feels like home as soon as everyone is gathered around the wonderful kitchen. You can't ask for a better place to put up your nearest and dearest.
